There’s no debate — Nashville is the country music capital of the world. Nicknamed Music City, Nashville has been attracting musicians since the 1920s. Today, thousands of music lovers visit each year to see the Grand Ole Opry, Country Music Hall of Fame and the famous honky tonks that dot the city. Those planning a trip to Nashville will find that purchasing all-inclusive packages can result in significant savings. TravelMag.com has researched several websites for cheap vacation packages to Nashville and found that both Expedia and Priceline offer comparable savings when reserving airfare and hotels together.

Priceline offered significant savings on vacation packages to Nashville compared to standalone bookings for airfare and hotels. Savings ranged between $50–$200 per person for week-long stays depending on the departure city and hotel class. For example, a 7-night family vacation package from New York at a 3-star hotel in downtown Nashville was $1,468 for two versus $1,742 if reserving airfare and lodging individually. The savings was even greater for 4-star hotels. An airfare and hotel package for two from Chicago with seven nights at a 4-star hotel saved $397. Priceline offers a “Best Price Guarantee,” which refunds 100 percent of the difference if a better offer is found elsewhere. But the downside is some packages are entirely nonrefundable.

Cheap vacation packages to Nashville can also be found on Expedia, with the savings hovering around $50–$100 per person. For example, a 7-night vacation package from Dallas staying at a 3-star downtown hotel was $1,502 compared to $1,615 if booked separately, resulting in a $56 discount per person. Packages from Los Angeles followed suit. Seven nights at a 3-star hotel with airfare was $1,696 for two in February, resulting in a $100 savings per person if booked alone. Like Priceline, the real savings could be seen when choosing higher-end hotels. For example, seven nights at a 4-star hotel flying from Dallas was $3,421 for two when booked together, compared to $3,866 if booked separately. TravelMag.com recommends checking both Priceline and Expedia to ensure you get the best possible package price.

Once you’ve decided on the right vacation package to Nashville, it’s time to start choosing the activities you plan to do once there. It can be challenging to research the myriad options, but booking a tour ahead of time can save time and money. More than a dozen options are available on Viator.com, including a Nashville food and sightseeing tour for $85, a brewery and pub tour for $49, or a celebrity homes tour for $80. Or, for $60, head down to Lynchburg and visit the Jack Daniel Distillery to learn how this world-famous whiskey is produced.
